Shai Wosner, Pianist

Pianist Shai Wosner has gained worldwide recognition for his exceptional artistry and creativity. His performances include works from Beethoven and Schubert to Ligeti and the music of today.

Born in Israel, Shai Wosner started partaking in music education at a very early age studying piano with Emanuel Krasovsky. He later attended The Julliard School in NYC, and also went on to collaborate with numerous artists such as, the Grammy Award-winning Parker Quarter in The Schubert Effect series. In the 2016-17 season, Wosner launched a new solo recital series, Schubert: The Great Sonatas, which continues his critically acclaimed engagement of classic music. Wosner is a recipient of Lincoln Center's Martin E. Segal Award, an Avery Fisher Career Grant, and a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award, a prize he used to commission Michael Hirsch's concerto Along the Ravines, which he performed with the Seattle Symphony and Deutsche Radio Philharmonie in its world and European premieres. In BBC Music Magazine, they stated that "{Wosner's] account of the Sonata is magnificent. He responds intensely to the poetry and terror of this extraordinary work, which he allows to speak with all its hesitations, false steps and crazy outbursts."
